Green Garden (Reynolds)
Late last night
I made up this song
That turned out to be about three minutes long
It tells my life in sixty seconds or so
And I hope you won’t think that I’m cuttin’ it to low

Green Garden listens through the tunnel of love
I hope that’s not my ship that they’re sinking above
If my eyes don’t deceive me I’ve just suddenly heard
That you’re comin’ home for dinner and we’re cookin’ a bird

I looked out the window and what did I see
Not the burglar I expected but a reflection of me
It scared me so as you might expect
At that time of night I was a total wreck

Green Garden listens through the tunnel of love
I hope that’s not my ship that they’re sinking above
If my eyes don’t deceive me I’ve just suddenly heard
That you’re comin’home for dinner and we’re cookin’ a bird

They say that I’m crazy but it only hurts
When I find that they’re wrong and there are many Burts
If the world’s gonna be saved we need more like me
Who are sometimes crazy but always free

Green Garden listens through the tunnel of love
I hope that’s not my ship that they’re sinking above
If my eyes don’t deceive me I’ve just suddenly heard
That you’re comin’ home for dinner and we’re cookin’ a bird
(One more time)
Green Garden listens through the tunnel of love
I hope that’s not my ship that they’re sinking above
If my eyes don’t deceive me I’ve just suddenly heard
That you’re comin’ home for dinner and we’re cookin’ a bird
(All right...)

Soldier On Fire (Smolinske)
They'll park underneath a neon light
And get a room with cheese cloth walls
Come together in a darkened room
Holdin’ together like boards been nailed
Fall into the bed like a train derailed

And never forget the weep and laugh
Back and forth
Like a soldier on fire

Outside in the parking lot
The cheap private cop sits and he waits
Munching kinda loud on popcorn and candy
All ready with a message to send
Just sittin’ and waiting for the show to end

And never forget the weep and laugh
Back and forth
Like a soldier on fire

When the kids all know
And the parents hear
They’ll never understand he’s a magic man
A secret agent from Pakistan
Come to cure the suburban housewife blues

Deus Ex Machina (Reynolds)
Now Gatsby had a love
As he looked across the sea
And though he couldn’t see his dove
He thought he saw Daisy
And although the light was bright
Through the haze he couldn’t see
That the light that night
Wasn’t her but eternity

Well I’ve seen Duncan and I’ve seen Pan
but that doesn’t mean I’m a special man
Where ever you go you’re gonna find
Someone who will lift you up to the sky
And when you’ve arrived you’re gonna see
Someone who will look across at me
And you’re gonna say technology hooray
Deus Ex Machina

Now I know that I have found
The love that he had sought
Thanks to the machine that leaves the ground
I have all I could never have bought
And as for her I know we’ll be
Good friends eternally
And of that divine machine from the old city

Well I’ve seen Duncan and I’ve seen Pan
But that doesn’t mean I’m a special man
Where ever you go you’re gonna find
Someone who will lift you up to the sky
And when you’ve arrived you’re gonna see
Someone who will look across at me
And you’re gonna say technology hooray
Deus Ex Machina

Well I’ve seen Duncan and I’ve seen Pan
But that doesn’t mean I’m a special man
Where ever you go you’re gonna find
Someone who will lift you up to the sky
And when you’ve arrived you’re gonna see
Someone who will look across at me
And you’re gonna say technology hooray
Deus Ex Machina

Eternal Protoplasm (Reynolds)
Outside the gently falling rain
Splats blood upon the pavement of my ears
It doesn’t cause me much pain
Except for when I try to hear

I’m drowning in the protoplasm of eternal consciousness
Everyone around me goes on playing their game of tennis
They don’t see the things the way I do
One of these days they’re gonna step in some doggie do

Bodily amputations go swimming in the pool
Of suburban blue sky quiet afternoon
It causes the fish to go to school
Before their meal is gone all too soon

I’m drowning in the protoplasm of eternal consciousness
Everyone around me goes on playing their game of tennis
They don’t see the things the way I do
One of these days they’re gonna step in some doggie do

These shoes are darn cruel to my feet
Much like a cooked cop on the beat
My socks protect me from their claw
Just like a kickback to the law

I’m drowning in the protoplasm of eternal consciousness
Everyone around me goes on playing their game of tennis
They don’t see the things the way I do
One of these days they’re gonna step in some doggie do

I’m drowning in the protoplasm of eternal consciousness
Everyone around me goes on playing their game of tennis
They don’t see the things the way I do
One of these days they’re gonna step in some doggie do

Shakespeare (Reynolds)
I don’t know ‘bout you but it seems to me
That we’re not as free as we use to be
Cages don’t confin the flesh in the lair
But the spirit doesn’t tune in to what doesn’t care

A headache throbs in Shakespeare’s head
The migraines alive and the playwright’s dead
I guess it’s like the great one said
All things must come to end
Outside the rain pounds down very hard
Heaven laments the passing of a bard
Hell’s dirt provides comfort while concealing it’s card
Compassion bought to send
My arteries explode with the passing of art
Maybe the Neutron will give us another start
To shop the soul and not the mart
Maybe I’ll find a friend

You can go on and do what you want to do
Stick your head down deep in the earthly stew
But if you do then you may very soon find
That the rest of you is six feet under-mined

A headache throbs in Shakespeare’s head
The migraines alive and the playwright’s dead
I guess it’s like the great one said
All things must come to end
Outside the rain pounds down very hard
Heaven laments the passing of a bard
Hell’s dirt provides comfort while concealing it’s card
Compassion bought to send
My arteries explode with the passing of art
Maybe the Neutron will give us another start
To shop the soul and not the mart
Maybe I’ll find a friend

Traffic Jelly (Hall)
Slippin’ and slidin’ movin’ on down the road
Show keeps a fallin’ and it’s almost like road ala mode
Traffic keeps movin’ only at such a slow pace
Better get a movin’ or they’re gonna make me late

Traffic Jelly
It’s a waste
Traffic Jelly
Ooooh they’re gonna make me late

Slippin’ and slidin’ movin’ to a quicker pace
Don’t matter where always feels like I’m in last place
Gotta get a movin’ if I cross the center line
If I drive on the curb maybe that’ll save me some time

Traffic Jelly
It’s a waste
Traffic Jelly
Ooooh they’re gonna make me late
Ahhhh

Less than a stupid quarter inch of stupid snow
Seems to bring slow old folks out in droves
Not as if this snow had suddenly turned to ice
Makes me wish I had some napalm or a similar device

Traffic Jelly
It’s a waste
Traffic Jelly
Ooooh they’re gonna make me late

If I get right up behind ‘em boy it makes ‘em swear away
Give ‘em a little tap it makes them spin out of the way
Snow’s lettin’ up but they’re movin’ as slow as before
Maybe if I get up close and nudge a couple more
Hahahah

Traffic Jelly
It’s a waste
Traffic Jelly
Ooooh they’re gonna make me late
Hahahaha

Traffic Jelly
It’s a waste
Traffic Jelly
Ooooh they’re gonna make me late

 

Stephanie (Reynolds)
Swan high above in the restless sea
Appears to hover pausing for me
Extending myself she remains beyond grasp
Leaving the question that I long to ask
Continuing on to touch those that are ready tonight
Will not join her on this flight

Shall I seek you to the exclusion of all else that I may want
Should I leave you beyond the horizon and carry out what destiny has wrought
If you’re love's as real as you say
Why must I earn it this way

But is the mist that surrounds me in the moonlight of her rhyme
The key to longevity or the waste of precious time
Needing love is not so bad as having none to give
I already lost the one I had and now I want to live

Palms extended she offers to free
The minds of those that wish to be
I long to surrender completely to her
And not live alone today or forever
Yet is it the voice of compassion
Or the destructive lure of the siren

Yet her song seems vaguely familiar
Perhaps the first genetic memory
Seems to provoke the feeling I hear
When the starlight shines right through me
I wonder if they could be the same
Or whether nature can never be tame

But is the mist that surrounds me in the moonlight of her rhyme
The key to longevity or the waste of precious time
Needing love is not so bad as having none to give
I already lost the one I had and now I want to live

One said it’s only out of reach for those who don’t believe
The other said it’s just beyond the grasp of that I seek
I long to hear the melody that is all that I will be
She sings of love so distant yet closer than reality

Perhaps someday I’ll meet her in this world or another
Perhaps someday she’ll love me in this dimension or whatever
‘Till then I’ll continue to listen
‘Till then I’ll continue to reason

Swan high above in the restless sea
Appears to hover pausing for me
Extending myself she remains beyond grasp
Leaving the question that I long to ask
Continuing on to touch those that are ready tonight
Will not join her on this flight

You Can’t Swim To The Shores Of Space (Hall)
In a lifeboat on a sea you stand a chance
Shipwreck carries with it a stigma of romance
For a sailor to drown at sea a disgrace
If he swims to shore he will save face

But I’m a spaceman shipwrecked in the midnight sky
Moving hundreds of miles in the blinking of an eye
In the sea you can paddle from place to place
But you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space

As the vapor that was my ship washes by
Just a flash of light just a twinkle in the night
Just barely enough time to get my pressure suit on
And with a woosh she tore herself apart and was gone

I’m just a spaceman shipwrecked in the midnight sky
Moving hundreds of miles in the blinking of an eye
In the sea you can paddle from place to place
But you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space

As the CO2 level builds you feel no pain
Water vapor condenses on the face plate like rain
It’s a shame that I’ll have to die on the shore
But my O2 supply won’t let me live any more

I’m just a spaceman shipwrecked in the midnight sky
Moving hundreds of miles in the blinking of an eye
In the sea you can paddle from place to place
But you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space

No you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space
No you can’t swim to the shores of space

Almost Absolute Zero (Hall)
The stars look especially pretty tonight
Even through the glass dome
While it’s almost absolute zero outside
It’s so warm in here next to you

Think how terribly cold it’s outside
The harsh vacuum between stars
Lyin’ on our backs in the grass on the hill
The stars don’t seem very far

To think how far that we’ve come
Leaving our homes far behind
Someday we’ll arrive and we’ll stand in the sun
‘Till then this dome is our home

The stars look especially pretty tonight
even through the glass dome
While it’s almost absolute zero outside
It’s so warm in here next to you

I explain to you about the stars
While a cool breeze slides down the hill
You shush me to silence I ask you what’s wrong
You say facts are fine but the timing’s all wrong
You say here’s a fact its a fact that its true
You whisper to me I love you

The stars look especially pretty tonight
Even through the glass dome
While it’s almost absolute zero outside
It’s so warm in here next to you

Oh the stars do look so pretty tonight
Making love beneath their silent shine
While it’s almost absolute zero outside
It’s so warm in here next to you

Software Repairman (Reynolds)
Drive downtown and hop on a jet
Customers computer is on the blink
Land in the city and then I’ll be set
Man these service contracts stink

Maintenance programmer is what they call me
The title sounds official but the work ain’t easy
Cleaning out the cesspool of faulty programs
Has earned me the name of Software Repairman

To cure the program I make the incision
Remove the bad instruction put the new on in
Then if the knee’s OK I move on to the shin
To get this program runnin’ again

Maintenance programmer is what they call me
The title sounds official but the work ain’t easy
Cleaning out the cesspool of faulty programs
Has earned me the name of Software Repairman

I don’t carry a black bag ‘cause my patients aren’t human
I whip out my company tag and then I’m groovin’
My tools aren’t mechanical they’re stored in my brain
And that won’t rust if it’s left in the rain

Maintenance programmer is what they call me
The title sounds official but the work ain’t easy
Cleaning out the cesspool of faulty programs
Has earned me the name of Software Repairman

Though my job keeps me traveling from city to city
I never am alone and I never am lonely
My work is fun and it keeps me busy
The LED’s are bright and their flashing is pretty

Maintenance programmer is what they call me
The title sounds official but the work ain’t easy
Cleaning out the cesspool of faulty programs
Has earned me the name of Software Repairman

Maintenance programmer is what they call me
The title sounds official but the work ain’t easy
Cleaning out the cesspool of faulty programs
Has earned me the name of Software Repairman

I Need Light Speed (Hall, Music By Jeff Wayne)
I have been glidin’ away about six years to the day
I need light speed
A cargo ship on the roam has carried me far from home
I need light speed
Out here in space you see
A slow cargo ship and me
Light speed’s what I need
I’ve got to dump all this shit and make a U-turn that’s it
I need light speed
I’m going to find my way home ‘cause I feel so damned alone
I need light speed
Outside on EVA damned near breathed space today
No way
that’s it
I’m headin’ home
